Throughout the school year, the Tomorrow's Leaders mentoring program will participate in various activities that promote education. Below are some of the signature events that we take part in each year.

JT & Margaret Talkington Leadership Academy


Each fall, student-athletes from Texas Tech host our kids at the Tech Soccer Complex for a Leadership Experience. Our students participate in several team building activities while the parents of our kids also take part in a leadership experience themselves. A counselor will speak to the parents on parenting and way to improve discipline and respect in the household

History & Science Tour

At the end of every school year, we like to reward our students with a field trip. This trip has to be earned through good behavior, attendance at our events and overall a good report from their teachers. This trip is not just any ordinary field trip. We like to call it our American History & Science Tour and its final destination is Washington D.C. This trip takes place in the nation's capitol, we will travel by charter bus from Lubbock and will spend most of an entire week visiting and learning about our national monuments up close. We also like to mix in some fun activities such as a professional baseball game or an amusement park while we are there. In the summer of 2015 we were able to add New York City to the trip. We made History and Science the focus because these are subjects that our students will become more familiar with as they enter Middle School. Science is one of the subjects that has seen a dramatic decline in interest and performance across the country, and exposing our kids to real life locations that showcase the importance in science related careers can help boost their interest as well as knowledge in this subject.


During the first 3 years of Tomorrow's Leaders our History & Science tour was limited to the state of Texas. Some of our stops were Ft. Concho in San Angelo, the Alamo, Sea world and the Zoo all in San Antonio, the Texas State Capitol Building in Austin, NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, the University of Houston, and Texas Tech University at Junction campus to name a few.


Our Washington D.C. tour included stops at The White House, The United States Capitol, The National Air and Space Museum, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, The National Museum of Natural History, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, The National Aquarium in Baltimore, MD and Oriole Park at Camden Yards (home of the Baltimore Orioles).


Our New York City tour included stops at the Statue of Liberty, Time Square, Central Park, and the September 11th Memorial,

Take a Kid to a Game

Each year Texas Tech University hosts various student organizations from all across the South Plains for a collegiate sporting event. For a lot of our students, this is the first college sporting event they've ever attended. This is also a great way to expose them to the traditions and spirit of a university.



Financial Literacy Class

It is never to early to start learning how to budget and spend money wisely. This event with the help of a local bank is designed to educate our students on the importance of being financially responsible. They learn about checking and savings accounts, mortgages, bills, and how an education can affect how much money one can make.



Camping Event


Each Spring we host a camping event for our kids. This gives them a chance to step away from the video games and the comforts of their TV and experience the great outdoors. The location of the trip will vary based on availability and the weather. The duration is usually one night. We will provide all the camping equipment.



Teen Straight Talk


The focus of this event is to talk about and educate our students on the difficult subjects that are students will face as they enter middle school such as teen pressures, bullying, sexting, depression, sex education, stress and making responsible choices. We partner with Texas Tech University Health Science Center.
